Texas City Dike to charge visitor fee

August 17, 2010 2:44:21 PM PDT
Visitors to the new and improved Texas City Dike will have to pay for access once it opens. The dike has been closed since Hurricane Ike hit nearly two years ago. When it opens in September, non-Texas City residents will be charged a $5 fee per vehicle every weekend. The money will go to help clean the beaches.

Texas City residents will get special stickers in their water bill that will allow them access for free.
